We've heard plenty about current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones potentially moving up to heavyweight in the future, but what if he did it for something that had nothing to do with mixed martial arts (MMA)?
Lance Pugmire of the LA Times is reporting that Jones' recent boxing training has been so encouraging that the champ is considering a future boxing fight, and it's not just any boxing fight, it's a Klitschko bout.
@JonnyBones says he's been doing so well in boxing training, more than 500 rounds, he's encouraged to work toward a future Klitschko bout.— Lance Pugmire (@latimespugmire) September 16, 2013
The Klitschko brothers, Wladimir and Vitali have been in complete control of the major boxing heavyweight titles since 2004, utilizing their long length, jabs and technical prowess to stifle every challenger.
Jones of course, has the longest reach in UFC at 84 inches, which is actually three inches longer than either Klitschko.
Before any of that craziness goes down, however, "Bones" has a date with Alexander Gustafsson this weekend (Sept. 21, 2013) as he looks to defend his title for a record sixth time at UFC 165 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The winner of the main event is already scheduled to face top contender Glover Teixeira in their next bout as well.
Do you think the bout ever takes place?
